Our son, Ilan was born six weeks early in a rather eventful birth. Needless to say, when we got the green light to have his brit performed at three weeks of age (on a baby under five pounds!) it was rather traumatic for me as his mother. Dr. Karasov was calm, caring and nurturing and was able to turn a potentially harrowing experience into a meaningful and spiritual moment. His humor, support and wisdom were exactly what was needed.
